“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
It’s a quote often (wrongly) attributed to George Bernard Shaw. To ‘create’ here is to understand that the decision to choose what goes into crafting our ‘persona’ lies with each one of us. Every individual has the power to choose his or her beliefs, actions, experiences, desires and the means to achieve their aims. It’s these choices that makes the sum of who we are, of all that defines us…
“You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these.
You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life…you are every single second of every single day.
So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in…” ~Jac Vanek
